Mt 8:22 Follow me. The highest of all duties, now discharged by becoming his disciple, obeying him and making his life our example. Let the dead bury their dead. Those spiritually dead will attend to the last rites of them who have died naturally.

It's not what do I think, it's what does it say.
The Scripture clearly tell us we need ot get our priorities straight. Much like WWJD what would Jesus do, it's should be WDJD what did Jesus DO. We need to read and pray and do the things the bible commands us to do.
